Hey all you pojo cats out there. It’s
time for the last COTD for this week, and we got a
really cool card for you today. Check this stuff
When a character powers up, you may attach this item
from your hand or graveyard to that character.
Discard this card to use the power up.
Now we have an amazing card here IMO.
Definitely a card that you have to use in those
power up decks. It’s a really good card,especially
with specific cards and power ups.
The best ones I can see this working for is probably
-Juromaru LF, which steals a shard
- Naraku LF, which prevents your
opponents events for a turn, which can be amazing if
used over and over mind you.
- Sesshy LF – Search your deck or
discard pile for a card and put it in your hand?
- Even Shippo, Master Duelist, who
saves a character.
Power Ups can be really effective if
used right, so what’s better than having the chance
to do them again?
This card has the ability to activate
when it’s in the graveyard. So let me get this
right…All it has to be is in the graveyard and I get
infinite power up effects, as long as I constantly
power up? Holy crap…
It’s pretty self explanatory. You use
a lot of power ups? Use this card. You can only use
one anyway, so what’s the problem?
Now, there are some problems with the
First of all, and probably the
biggest of the problems is that the card is reliant
of being available in either the hand or graveyard.
So unless you have a god like Power Up Hand, or get
a lucky top 6 drop when you play your 2 characters,
you probably won’t get it very often. And you only
get to use 1, so it won’t make a presence that often
unless you really try to search for it. Use a card
that searches your deck for a card and discards it.
Look What We Found, Right? Works perfectly…
Also, the main problem is that the
card is reliant on the fact that you need to power
up to really activate the graveyard effect and get
the card on them during battle. You can normal
attach it, but that won’t happen often either.
Anyway, the problem with power ups is that it really
kills your hand. I mean, with Sesshy and his search
ability, it shouldn’t be much of a problem, but the
fact that you have to power Up to get the card can
really kill off your hand. And note that Powering Up
does not mean “using the power up ability”, So you
don’t get the effect when you use this card to use
the power up. Got it? I’m lost too…
So, what if you don’t have anything
to power up when this card is in your graveyard?
Well, it’ll stay there won’t it? You just hope you
draw some Power Up in your next 3 draw or it’ll just
stay there. Doesn’t really hurt you if you have it
or not, but it’s always better to know you have it.
You can only use 1…Yea, but think
about it. It’s really broken if used right. Why give
Power UP decks that kind of advantage? 1 is fine
enough. The fact that it’s unique is stupid though.
I mean, if you can only use 1, then it’s probably
unique already, but calling it a non-unique would
only make it too easy to play.
Overall, there aren’t that many
problems with the card excluding the situations
where you don’t get a good chance to play it.
Here’s your recap of Consumed Souls
+ Reuse Power UP abilities from the

+ No cost and can be reused often
with Powering Up
- Can be situational
- Powering UP kills of your hand w/o
- You need it in the hand or
graveyard to use it. That won’t happen often when
you only get 1 in a 60 card deck…
Constructed (Power UP Control) – 5/5
If you don’t realize that you should
use a card that reuses Power Ups in a Power Up deck,
then why did you even go through my COTD…You use a
lot of Power Ups, use this. Period.
Constructed (Overall) – 3/5 –
I don’t give it a good score because
you can’t use it in a deck without a good amount of
Power ups. If you use less than 5, then there really
is no point. But if you use power ups a lot, then
it’s a staple. Although, Insect decks, FEDs, Chibis,
and some other archtypes can’t use this card in any
way. Best in PUP Control.
Art – 4/5
– I remember this. This was when the King absorbed
Shunran, Shuran, and Karan’s souls to give himself
life. That was messed up…
